THREAD-"@SenBobCorker sat on a senate committee that oversees infrastructure while trading hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock in energy infrastructure companies." act.credoaction.com/sign/ban-congr…
"@SenToomey and @SenWhitehouse trade health stocks while serving on health subcommittees, while @SenatorTomUdall does the same on energy.
"@JimInhofe bought stock in a military contractor just days after pushing for expanded military spending, in an almost blatant display of potential insider trading."
"In 2015, senators traded somewhere between $104 million and $337 million in stock, according to a report from our friends at Public Citizen. Outright conflicts of interest continue despite a 2012 law, the STOCK Act, that attempted to end insider trading by members of Congress.
"The law bans only the most outright insider trading – clear examples of buying or selling stock based on inside information – but allows senators and representatives to profit from policy changes."
